Working with doctors Working for patients

Who completes my certificate of experience?

This page explains who submits certificates of experience for doctors in the first year of the Foundation Programme (F1) and whether you need to get in touch with them.

If you are moving from F1 to F2, the person listed below against your medical school will submit your certificate of experience to us. Most doctors don’t need to do anything as this process is automatic. Please read the following paragraphs below to see if you need to speak to the person responsible for submitting your certificate.

You should contact this person if:

  • We have invited you to apply for registration, but you are not yet due to complete F1. You should ask the person to update your GMC record.

  • You completed F1 between 1 August 2007 and 28 May 2015.

You should not contact this person:

  • To ask them to complete your certificate. They will do this automatically.

  • To give you an update on your application.

When will you receive my certificate of experience?

The certificate can be submitted up to 28 days before you’re due to complete F1.

We receive the majority of certificates in the last two weeks of July. We will contact you to confirm we have received this at least seven days before you complete F1. Most doctors finish F1 on the first Tuesday in August.

What if I’m applying at a different time?

If you are not applying between May and July – usually if you’ve taken time out of F1 or you are working less-than-full-time – we will receive your certificate up to 28 days before you complete F1. We will contact you to confirm we have received this at least seven days before you complete F1.
